Re: H Captcha

Hi Barry.

I agree. Not only that, but we are asked to store a cookie on our browsers that users who don't need this are not. This poses privacy concerns.

I consider myself to have excellent hearing, but the audio challenges pose a huge challenge for me, and often block me.

What is the alternative solution? to using Google or H captcha?

Best wishes,

Brian Dalton.

Personally, I'd rather have an inclusive design that was accessible than an accessible cookie hoop.

Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone here has ever tested this component? And what your views would be from a screen reader perspective.

When I put it through its paces, I couldn't overcome the challenge of the images, despite me pressing all of them. When I hit the verify button, nothing happened.
I tested it with Jaws and chrome, and Firefox and NVDA.

The only way I could overcome the challenge, was to use the accessible cookie, that you get when you sign up for H captcha, with your email address. You get an email with a link which points to the accessible cookie that you can install. That bypasses the challenge.

I've been asked to make an evaluation of this, and I'm interested in other oppinions and outcomes people had with it before I do.

Any ecxperience, view or comments would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.
